How To Measure Gooey Ingredients So They Don't Stick To The Spoon

The homemade salad dressing calls for 3 tablespoons of olive oil, but every time you try to measure it out, there's a thick layer that always gets stuck to the spoon. Not anymore, thanks to this trick.


What you need: Non-stick cooking spray

What you do:
Before pouring out the olive oil, spritz your measuring spoons (or cups) with the non-stick spray.

What will happen: When you add the olive oil to your salad dressing mixture, it will slide right off the spoon.

Good job! You used every last drop. No ingredient left behind.
